Upgrading to 13.04

I’m fairly new to ubuntu, so bear with me.

I’ve been trying to upgrade to from 12.10 to 13.04, and it detects there is an upgrade but I then get the following message:

The requested URL /pub/linux/ubuntu/dists/raring-updates/main/dist-upgrader-all/current/DevelReleaseAnnouncement.html was not found on this server.”

If I then click upgrade it says “failed to fetch….”

I have set up the software sources to use LEG.

What I believe is the problem is that the site http://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/ubuntu/dists/raring-updates/main/ does not contain dist-upgrader-all/ even though the official Ubuntu ftp does and I think that some of the installation files are located there.

Is the LEG FTP missing it or am I missing something?


It’s possible that the mirror

It’s possible that the mirror is temporarily out of sync. I will investigate.

We have hopefully resolved

We have hopefully resolved the issue that was causing the mirror to be out of sync. It may take some time for all the files to be updated, but everything should be working again soon. I suggest that you try again later today or tomorrow.

OK, my original time estimate

OK, my original time estimate may have been overly optimistic. Two months’ worth of updates is quite a lot of data — you may have to wait a few more days.

You can keep an eye on this directory: http://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/ubuntu/

Those two archive-update-in-progress files at the top should be removed when the current update is done. Of course another update may start shortly afterwards, but after this big sync is out of the way the mirror should be in a reasonably up-to-date state.
